M: Hello, Mary. How nice to see you again. How's everything going?
W: Fine. Busy these days?
M: Yeah. With lots of things to do. Would you like to join me for a drink?
W: Ok, thanks.
M: Any news recently?
W: Oh, well, I read in the local paper the other day that the government is planning to build an airport here, you know that?
M: I'm afraid not.
W: Well, my real objection to this idea of a new airport is, is the whole thing is so wasteful, I mean, we know we are currently in fuel crises,
W: we know that we've got to conserve oil and fuel and all the rest of it,
W: and yet here the government seems quite deliberately to be encouraging people to, to travel, to use and these jets use a heck of a lot of oil,
W: I mean it takes a ton of oil, a ton of petrol before one of these big jets even takes off.
W: It seems so completely short-sighted to me.
W: Quite apart from all the waste of land and so on, I can't see, I can't see the rationale behind really wanting an, an airport at all.
M: Well, surely you must admit that the existing airport nearby are becoming swarmed. I mean, why should people, uhh...
W: Well, they aren't being swarmed.
M: Be treated like cattle when there is a chance of... a new airport here.
W: But, but really people shouldn't be traveling that much, that's, that's why most of the journeys, I mean, they swamped because there is far too much unnecessary tourism and so on.
W: It isn't necessary for people to travel so fast or even so often.
M: Well, you take the climate here in this country.
M: Now just before Christmas, there was this dreadful cold spell, and there was a tremendous increase in number of people who wanted to leave and spend Christmas and the New Year in a reasonable climate of sun and, and a certain mild climate.
M: And, and in summer, the same situation occurs. It is unbearably hot here and people want to go somewhere cool.
W: Well, yes, I can sympathize with that. But it is still not really necessary to do, well, as it is necessary to, to conserve fuel and it is necessary to, well, not to waste land.
W: I mean land for a new airport could be used for far more important things which would benefit the people here far more. I mean it could be used for farming for instance.
